Three couples of us from Upriver boated to Pink Shell Resort at Fort Myers Beach.
It was a great place to spend the New Year's Eve Weekend.
In case there is any doubt, the sign on the right tells us that '"You are here -- in Paradise." The two pictures on the left are the resort Marina. Us and a few other boats -- maybe you can guess which one is ours. (Keep in mind that our dock at home is only 30 feet long. Some of these boats would take up our whole canal.)
Pink Shell is a beautiful resort hotel, with a couple of places to eat, swimming pools, spas and the whole usual resort amenities. It is on the trolley line, so it was easy to go to the town of Fort Myers Beach, which we did one afternoon and evening.
We had fun visiting with our friends, eating, drinking, walking, and watching the fireworks display at midnight New Year's Eve. But my favorite pictures are of the quiet times at the beautiful beach.
I think this is a Black Bellied Plover in winter plumage.
New Year's morning walk. A good start for the year.
Sunset at the beach.
Good advice (at a driveway in the resort complex.)
